Ground Clearance

With the vehicle stationary, ground clearance is the measurement from the lowest-hanging point under the vehicle (usually a differential or the exhaust system) to the ground. A high ground clearance allows a vehicle to drive more easily off-road or through heavy snow without damaging underbody components. Ground clearance can also be measured at other key oints, such as under the frame, in order to help drivers navigate off-road obstacles.
